WOW. This is pretty mind-blowing. The FBI identified 'Peace Data' as a Russian disinformation operation. But look at it see what it's promoting: a take-down of #RussiaReport. Extraordinary to see Kremlin & Boris Johnson are literally united in dismissing this report

Two other key points: more evidence that UK & US are both key targets for Russian disinfo. But note: it was FBI that tipped off Facebook & Twitter. Presumably because as #RussiaReport itself stated, WE DO NOT HAVE SINGLE AGENCY IN CHARGE OF PROTECTING US FROM FOREIGN INTERFERENCE

Finally, idea that Kremlin only helps the right, or favour the Conservatives is helpfully exposed as a lie. This is a leftist narrative about why #RussiaReport is a waste of time. It is not about politics! It's basic national security. You can help here:
